I established Synergy Breakthroughs in 2010 to assist individuals, groups, and organizations in developing the kind of creativity and resilience that would optimize the experience of navigating through change.

Having traveled many professional paths, including that of teacher, stockbroker, meeting planner, instructional designer, organization development trainer, technical writer, and business analyst, and having worked in many different industries and environments as a consultant, I am no stranger to change. At times, I perceived change as a burden; but I eventually came to see change as invaluable. Treasuring and exercising our fluidity and creativity in the face of change encourages us to stay open, be flexible, experience, and learn; and the advice and support of others can help us to creatively manage unfamiliar territory and optimize the experience.

As Eric Hoffer once said, “In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” We see this in the world of technology, and I have found it particularly true in the world of IT contracting. I often say that this business (IT consulting) makes you humble, because as soon as you think you know everything, everything changes.

“In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves
beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”

I have also explored many self-development paths, which led to my training and experience in coaching and hypnotherapy. These disciplines have led me to conclude, “As within, so without” – that a person’s inner world and self-perception are significantly related to his outer world – his health, energy, motivation, success, interactions, relationships, etc.

It’s interesting to observe a similar dynamic, with greater complexity, in groups and organizations – because organizations are people, and the unique thread of energy that each person contributes forms a “multicolored twine” of energy. How will the strands affect the nature and direction of the project, individually and collectively?

Consulting can provide perspective, structure, and tools for implementing changes; hypnotherapy can create profound inner and outer transformation; and coaching can provide valuable support during change.

Having the right support when making pivotal decisions and charting different courses, in life and in business, can make a critical difference. Albert Einstein once said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” As we experience times of exponential change, it helps to equip ourselves with new thinking, new approaches – and even new selves! I am here to support you in that process.
